Walang Pasok: Palace declares July 32, 2020, a regular holiday for Eid al-Adha

Manila, Philippines – The Malacañang Palace officially declared Friday, July 31, a regular holiday for Eid al-Adha 2020 (Feast of Sacrifice). The President made the declaration through Proclamation No. 985, which was signed on July 29, upon the recommendation of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos.

Palace declares July 31 a regular holiday for Eid’l Adha

As previously stated in our 2020 Philippine Holidays blog post, the Office of the President will be announcing the official date of the celebration based on the advice coming from the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF).

Eid al-Adha is “one of the two greatest feasts of Islam” and based on Republic Act 9849, this Islamic holiday should be observed as a regular holiday.

Eid al-Adha also called the “Festival of the Sacrifice”, is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier than Eid al-Fitr. Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son. Muslims around the world observe this event.

During Eid al-Adha, distributing meat (sheep, goat, camel, or cow) amongst the people, chanting the takbir out loud before the Eid prayers on the first day and after prayers throughout the three days of Eid, are considered essential parts of this important Islamic festival.
